Tell a friend



I was born among the roots

And I’ve got in my veins the sap

Of animals and plants.


I live among the creatures

Of the earth and of the world.


I help the divine work

Of God and of Men.


I make life grow

And I care

So that water doesn’t run short

And the cold doesn’t burn.


My senses

Mix up with the smell

Of the earth of your look

And with your shaky voice.


When the Sun and the Wind

Heat the ground and the birds

Men call me



But everybody knows

That I am…
